Join us at Green Door Gallery for an evening with the artist and the chance to
view her new work.
Traci Isaly is a true child of the West. Born in Wyoming and raised in a small town, she and her
siblings had access to wide-open spaces and mountainous vistas. Exploring the open spaces in
the outdoor arena of her childhood home left an indelible mark on Traci Isaly’s memory. She uses
those memories and experiences as a guide in her creative expression. All the bits and pieces left
behind when wild things live their lives serve as inspiration and material for her art. Through art
she tells stories.
Traci Isaly has been pursuing a mixed-media approach to the creation of archetypal figures for 14
years. It is an inexhaustible medium. This year she has decided to focus her attention on
Paradise Valley. Paradise Valley and the surrounding area is rich in culture, characters, and wild
creatures of both the human and non-human sort. Mixing it up, she has created a collection of
archetypal figures that reflect, in her minds eye, where she lives, dreams and works to make the
world a better place to be.
The attached image is a sketch of two of her figures. She first makes sketches and then works to
build the figures and embellish them from the drawings.
